Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is Webster University?
A: Webster University is a private, non-profit university. The university is based in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Our campuses are found in USA, Europe, Asia and Africa. Each campus offers the experience of American education.
Webster University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. All Webster campuses have American accreditation. The Ghana Campus is also accredited by the Ghana National Accreditation Board.


Q: How long does it take to complete a Bachelor's degree?
A: The length of your Bachelor’s degree program depends on the curriculum you completed. If you have passed the West African Senior School Certificate Examination or have a Senior High School Diploma, it takes 4 years for you to earn the Bachelor's degree. If you have successfully completed your A-levels or IB, then you will be given advanced placement which shortens the length of the Bachelor's degree by up to one academic year.

Q: How long does it take to complete a Master's program?
A: All courses are taught in the evenings which is ideal for working professionals. A full-time student will complete the Master's degree in 6 terms (roughly 14 months). However, students have the choice to take the courses part-time and earn a degree over a longer period (usually 2-3 years). If you have already completed a Master's degree in any discipline you can earn the MBA or MA in 9 or 10 courses, instead of 12 which saves you time and money. On the other hand, if you have little or no background in business administration, you may have to take anywhere between 1-3 pre-requisite courses, at Webster (Ghana), to complete the MBA.
